STUDENT PROJECT ASSIGNMENT
Under the guidance of U.S. senior engineers, students will apply the fundamental principles of international engineering to solve a real-world engineering problem by following the real-world international engineering process in the broad context of engineering design, considering global market, problem definition, conceptual design, design evaluation, detailed design, technical analysis, manufacturability evaluation, and economic feasibility.
Project Notes:
(1). Problem statement is dependent on students’ majors.
(2). Students must form a team of 5 members and develop decision making guidelines for roles and responsibilities, member opinion, and consensus.
(3). Students must follow international engineering process.
(4). Students Deliverables:
A. Documents:
• Market Requirements Document (MRD)
• Product Description Document (PDD)
• System Design Proposal (No component design is needed)
• Global Pricing and Marketing Strategy
B. Weekly Reports
C. Presentations
(5). Important guidelines:
A. No single "correct" solution: Students’ solutions should be in a way that is best for customers (international market needs) and for the “company” (profitability).
B. Students’ solutions should take the following global constraints into consideration:
• Economic
• Environmental
• Ethical and Legal
• Health and Safety
• Manufacturability
• Political and Social
• Sustainability
